Win a Gingerbread House Kit - Week 2



Thanks to everyone who shared their best ever childhood Christmas present. We were able to relate to many of your stories and it was once again very difficult to pick a winner. The story that intrigued us the most is from Sharon Markwell who said:

"My best present was given to me over a few years. Each Christmas my sister and I were given, by a family friend, pieces of a dressing table set (do you remember what this even was?). One year a perfume sprayer, next year a jewellery box, etc etc, and the last piece was the tray to put them all on. Hers was pink and mine was blue. Each year we were on tenterhooks with excitement wondering what the next piece would be."

That's it for this year, but be sure to join our newsletter below to be notified about future contests. A very Merry Christmas from all of us at Gingerbread House Kit.

I had a trampoline when I was young,
Active and very fun.
Kids outside in our new home,

When I was a kid I received a bike with training wheels for Christmas, it was the best!

My little brother had evil knievel. It was amazing but I got something that went everywhere with me and created so many great times in the dirt and mud and in the house and up walls??? although mum was against that last one. I got my first ever Cougar in blue and it had a bonnet that opened to see the engine. My first Hot Wheels.

My barbie dream house was the treasured item I couldn’t believe I had a mansion with a lift, I played with it for hours each day and I was so proud of it, every birthday and Christmas I added items like the car, horse, spa I literally felt like a millionaire.

My best pressie was a pair of skates… I’d been dreaming about them all year so was so excited to get them! (Promptly broke my arm the next week while using them, but that’s another story!)

I know it sounds ridiculous, but my favourite Christmas present was a big lollipop from my nana…. she gave it to me for Christmas because she knew my mum wouldn’t let me have it otherwise!

My most memorable gift was when I was 6 years old. My Mum and Dad were struggling with bills as (unbeknown to me) my Dad was going through cancer. We each received small toys from the likes of an op-shop and a video cassette each with a different movie. We sat and watched together during Christmas day. I think it was more the memory that is special, as it was our last Christmas as a whole family.
